The Oklahoma Professional Sales Association provides an opportunity for successful salespeople and business owners to interact on an informal but upscale basis.
Successful people spend time with other successful people.
Are you spending enough time learning from and networking with successful business people?
I'm Mike Crandall,
the founder of the Oklahoma Professional Sales Association, OKPSA. When I started my Sandler office back in 2009, specializing in sales and business growth, I wanted to be successful. I quickly learned that I greatly increased my chance of success by surrounding myself with successful people. As a result, I now run one of the top Sandler offices in the world.
In 2013, I realized that other salespeople, sales managers, and business and non-profit leaders deserved the same opportunity, but there was no association for sales in Oklahoma. I gathered a core group of successful businesspeople and started OKPSA to give other people the opportunity to surround themselves with successful people.
If you want to surround yourself with successful people, we would love to have you join. If you prefer, you can always start by visiting a luncheon or networking event.

I like the quote from Prentis Hemphill, “Boundaries are the distance at which I can love you and me simultaneously.” That quote encompasses one of the boundaries I try to live out: the boundary of self-love.
Speaking is not difficult for me, and I believe I have some great messages to share. But you have to figure out who will pay you money. I had an idea, I had a product—me— but I didn’t have a market.
When you’re a beginning runner, one of the things you do wrong is you start out running too fast. It always happens. Without fail, it’s the single mistake every new runner makes. They’re just so excited to get going! I had the same problem when I started my business, and that especially showed in the naming of my business.
Back in November 2019 we had a special treat at OKPSA. We had our first ever panel that shared how digital technology fits in with sales, and much of that bridged into marketing.
My wife and I started WSI Summit back in 2012. Prior to that I spent more than 25 years in financial services, mostly at the leadership level. I now call myself a reformed corporate executive. Because of my background, we often end up working with organizations in the B2B space. One of the questions I get asked often is which social media platform businesses should be on.
I am the founder and chief consultant for a marketing company called Siren Media based in Oklahoma City. Often the kind of client I help is a business or nonprofit who is either just starting out or has plateaued in their marketing efforts. In many situations, they’ve started their marketing in a way that becomes unsustainable very quickly. I believe in a 3-step process of digital marketing that guides my clients through the marketing process and untangles the mess they’ve found themselves in.
